Our Company: The Schilli Companies is a multi-division subsidiary of Daseke, Inc., a rapidly-growing, publicly-held consolidator of the flatbed and specialized freight market in North America. Our business is built on the belief that listening to our customers and providing them with personalized, high-quality services that meet and exceed their expectations is the key to success. A passion for helping our customers, working together, and maintaining high standards of honesty and dependability has allowed us to enjoy continued prosperity since the formation of our original company, Schilli Motor Lines, in 1961.
Our Opportunity: We currently have two truckline operations internships available at our terminal in Lafayette, Indiana that are open to local students seeking a well-rounded introduction to the operations side of the transportation industry. Interns will be exposed to a wide range of roles and responsibilities as they interact with customers, shippers, drivers, and other logistics personnel to see processes through from start to finish.
If making the world move while learning something new in a fast-paced environment every day where no two days are ever the same is what you're seeking, this may be the internship for you.
These internships are scheduled to begin as part-time roles during the spring semester of 2018. We expect that each intern will work 20 to 25 hours per week with those hours being a combination of afternoon / evening shifts on weekdays in addition to some weekend work. The exact work schedule will be flexible and open to discussion prior to the internship start date to accommodate class schedules and pre-planned time away from campus. High-performing interns will be given the opportunity to extend their internship into the summer months full-time. Full-time hours are 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.
